Why this game is intriguing: The Sunday night game everyone pretends they won't be watching. The prime-time experience that fans are quick to discount will be the same one that no doubt produces soaring ratings a few days later. Schadenfreude is a powerful thing. Few fans feel sorry for the formerly brash Philadelphia Eagles, who have tumbled into the abyss in a car crash of a season that has the franchise headed for a house cleaning. On Sunday night, they'll face Tony Romo's Dallas Cowboys, who are similarly busy wasting another prime season with their core talent base. Fans in Philadelphia and Dallas will watch because they can't resist. Others will take part in rubbernecking, no doubt relishing in the high-profile failures of others.
